We live in Monroe, so living in the shadow of Driskill Mountain has really given so a sense of the beauty of the mountains. Sure, you deal with avalanches, snow, people lost...but its really worth it to us.

Lenoir City or Kingston TN or anywhere in East Tn. Close to Knoxville but tucked off in the foothills. Probably closer mountainous areas to La but east TN is great.

Asheville withstanding, Western NC is not aligned with the politics of Charlotte and Raleigh. Long way for you though.
I like far East TN . Lots of meth though.

Check out Mountain View, AR if that's what you're looking for.

An early contender for retirement for me and the wife. Got 20 years to go to keep an eye on the community, but it looks great. She says it depends where the kids end up...I told her if it's a blue state, I'll rent her a condo and I'll gladly fly in to see them often but not setting up my last home in one.

re: What’re the closest mountains to LA for a nice plot of land?
My boss just bought a big plot of land in the foothills of Mt. Cheaha in the Oxford/Munford area. I went up there with him a few weeks ago to shoot some guns and it is beautiful. His spot isn't high up at all but he will have a really nice view once he gets some of it cleared and graded to start building.

I'm jealous tbh. Closest neighbors are at least a couple miles down the road. Nice deer already showing up in trail cams. Beautiful area. He will be living the dream after he finishes all the work to be done.

looking at a satellite map of north LA, near Driskill mountain, what are all those cleared out spots in the woods with two tanks ?

re: What’re the closest mountains to LA for a nice plot of land?
I live in N.O. and love riding my motorcycle to an area with mountains for some great riding and beautiful scenery.

I can get to the Smoky Mountains in the same amount of time it takes me to get to Eureka Springs in the Ozarks since there is no interstate running N/S in Arkansas to get you there and it is state roads for a lot of the ride.

If looking for land, I'd seriously consider the Ozarks since land prices in Arkansas seems to be considerably cheaper than Tennessee, N. Georgia, N. Carolina, etc.

I've been to rallies in N. Georgia in the Suches area and there are great roads up that way with several real nice small towns along the way. That would be my second area of consideration if looking for land.

I'd stay away from Eureka proper if you want total privacy and freedom. It's in-town politics are pretty nuts because it's become such a huge gay business haven.

It's absolutely beautiful, though. Just venture a few miles and you're into authentic hillbilly country. Theres even elk up there. It's a little slice of heaven when you get out of the developed NWA areas. It's also a good 5-10 degrees cooler than the rest of the state in the summers and winters due to the elevation. That helps a lot fro May-Sept.

If you're going to drive 10-12 hours to the Smokies, driving a half day more gets you to real mountains in northern NM or southern CO.

Regardless of where you go, any resort/retirement area will have a lot of transplants and isn't necessarily representative of the state as a whole politically or socially, and will be subject to change over time.

Bring supplemental oxygen and keep an eye on the weather reports in the winter for rapidly changing conditions.

Yeah, I have found Eureka Springs a nice little town to visit, but I wouldn't want to live in, or near it as it is too damn touristy.

Out of Eureka Springs on the western side of the state offers great mountain riding on a bike and I've been through a lot of that area over the year of attending MC rallies up that way.

Draw a triangle with the points being Talladega,Sylacauga, and Ashland, Alabama. Inside that triangle land is fairly cheap, mountainous and remote.
